NKU Director of Athletics Ken Bothof announced on Friday that NKU and men’s basketball head coach John Brannen have agreed to a new four-year contract keeping Brannen as head coach through the 2021-2022 season.

Brannen has amassed a 55-42 overall record during his three years as the head coach of the Norse.

He also led the Norse to a berth in the 2017 NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament.

“It is truly an honor to arrive on this campus every day as the head men’s basketball coach and represent the Northern Kentucky/Greater Cincinnati community,” said Brannen in a press release. “I would like to thank Ken Bothof and Gerry St. Amand for their leadership and vision for our program and university. I’d also like to recognize our players. What they have accomplished the last several years is truly historic! I look forward to working with them every day to continue to add to the success of NKU basketball on and off the court.”
